so so sorry is this has been asked before but the quality of your pictures is incredible, do you have any advice for an idiot with a great gaming pc that still gives ts3 flickering/jagged textures with optimal settings and a matched graphics card? :c thank you

Wow thanks Nonners for the amazing (and undeserved) compliment! If you are able to play with all your settings on high with no crashing, but still have flickering and graphics issues, perhaps you need to adjust your graphics card’s settings? This post on MTS may be useful if you have an Nvidia card. This post may help you if you have an ATI card. 

Other than that I always make sure when I’m taking pics to have good lighting. I always have at least two or even three buydebug wall lights angled towards my Sims when I am taking pictures. I find this helps immeasurably with the quality of the pics. And I don’t use Photoshop either, just occasionally tweak a few things in Picasa, or if I’m feeling especially creative add a filter in Pixlr. Hope this has been of some help to you Nonners! <3

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Harry and Louis are the Stevie and Lindsey of the mermaid-tattoo-era stadium-rock eye-contact game. Louis’ eyes are dark, intense, controlling, with a surly “damn your love, damn your life” edge. Harry’s eyes say “I hear the darkness you’re expressing and it’s important to me but my heart tells me to twirl right now,” so he twirls and touches his hair. The brooding look vs. the beatific twirl. When one of them gets happy, the other gets wistful. When one of them gets bitchy, the other gets sugary. I could watch them sing together for hours. I could probably watch them do laundry for hours. (I doubt they do laundry.)”
